movement in american politics, but now they are the whining movement in american politics. their entire indictment of barack obama is, he's mean! that's pathetic. >> right. >> are you serious? >> yes, she is serious, ron. we just saw one of our fellow conservatives talking about the president's plan to outlaw fox news. actually all the president pointed out and i'm quoting was that if a republican member of congress is not punished by fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with a democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it. which i don't know, ron, sounds pretty obvious to me, but are you also losing sleep at night because you're afraid the president wants to take away your fox news and your guns? >> you know, i'm very happy to come on msnbc and say thank god for fox news. the fact of the matter is without fox news we'd still think that benghazi, that that attack, that terrorist attack happened because of a video. without katherine and special report and the hard news people. by the way, they have more hard news people than msnbc, cnn, and everybody el

interesting. he's been referred to as the republican barack obama. i don't know about that particular analogy, but clearly his bona fides as a political thinker were established in the ivy league and he seems to be, at least according to dana's chronically of his career, very, very shrewd. i would say in addition to him being an operator, he is also an identify l ideologue. i think he's going to have to smarten up a little biabout the direction the tea party is going to continue to go in terms of its vise grip control over the republican party because i'm not sure that can hold through immigration reform, through the series of different financial fiscal debt talks that have to occur. i think he will be smart in what he does. he has eclipsed palin. he's an ideologue in such a way that his charisma is not sort of dwarfed by that. his charisma shines through even though he has a right wing ideolo ideology. very complicated and interesting character and obviously we're going to be seeing a lot more of him. >> as you mention, i do think he presents himself with -- you can tell he's got sor

. i think at the end of the day it will be the big test of the new obama paradigm, which is to go outside the beltway, build pressure out the beltway, and make the republican obstructionists pay a severe political price for obstructing what is a strong american voter public sentiment in favor of doing these common sense gun rules. >> toure, to julian's point, dianne feinstein introduced her bill, which is an assault weapons ban bill. as we saw in the latest polls, there's broad support, 58% for this. support among gun owning households is 45%. let's hear jay carney on the bill itself. take a listen to jay. >> the president supports renewal of the assault weapons ban. he supports addressing or limiting the magazine capacity of ammunition -- the capacity of ammunition clips. the fact that they're hard, some harder than others, doesn't mean we shouldn't move forward on them. >> is that the acknowledgment of what julian was just saying, that in a sense they're going for everything, but if they've got to get it through the house, they're more likely to get some kind of rul on high capa

... it's the honey sweetness. i...i mean, you...love. >>> president obama has outlined a second term agenda that requires changing minds in washington. on gun regulation and immigration, the president has to turn some intangible political capital into results on the hill. first off an upbeat inauguration, the president not only has high favorability ratings. that has made some conservatives pretty nervous. >> i don't know that there's any stopping this. it's up to me and fox news. and i don't think fox news is that invested in this. but there's not -- i don't think there's any republican opposition to this of any majority consequence of size. we'll have to wait and see and find out. >> so far so good for immigration reformers, but today some card carrying members of the conservative media establishment came to rush's rescue. national review released a major resistance and criticism of this immigration deal. in a lead editorial titled "a pointless amnesty" the magazine says it's far from obvious there should be a path to citizenship. the editorial also casts a policy debate over undocumented

occupied the political center which is exactly what president obama is doing right now while the nra occupies the extreme political fringe opposing common sense things that 9 out of 10 americans support. >> julian, let me follow up on that. i agree with you. at the same time at the same point we're going to need a cadre of republican votes to get these things done. the more they fracture, yes, we can stand back and kind of let it happen. at the same time, we've got to make sure we're able to get the republican votes that we need to make sure we actually deliver on the promise. >> and i think that's exactly right, karen. and i think what you do to my earlier point is you begin to identify those 30 to 40 republicans that you think you can get, and you build out these coalitions in their districts. that can be done in a number of places as we have seen from some of the polling data, a number of republican districts. on guns you do exactly what you did, what mothers against drunk driving did in the 1980s when they flipped president reagan on drunk driving laws. this is old-fashioned reta

to political journalists, that denver debate. b, it said so much about who obama was. the fact that was the day he didn't feel he needed to really deliver, but more importantly to me one of the most powerful scenes in the book is the young obama staffers in chicago watching the debate unfold and being horrified because they had convinced themselves that if obama was going to lose this, it was their fault, it was on the staffers. but what they saw last night was, oh, my god, our hero let us down. they were so shocked by it. >> one of the other revelations in the book is where you talk about the fact that the president faces at least ten, ten credible threats to his safety. and i guess that explains why following the inauguration speech when he was seen walking in washington, he was surrounded by countless numbers of agents because he literally can't do that without that level of protection. >> i mean, it makes me nervous to even talk about it. watching those scenes, i was thinking i am glad i'm not part of the secret services. it would be so anxiety provoking. and also the gun contro

where a republican can have a constructive relationship with obama and not pay a political price for it, then no republicans are going to have constructive relationships with them because, you know, politicians are just -- are very self-serving and self-interested folks. that's how they got to where they are, and there has to be somebody who has to break the curse. there has to be a politician, a republican, who steps forward, works with obama on something, maybe it will be guns, maybe it will be immigration, we'll find out who works with him, who infuriates the base, infuriates rush limbaugh and glenn beck if he's still around out there, and survives and actually advances. as soon as that happens, then it shows an alternative path to power for republicans, and that will enable obama to then start having relationships again. >> he is still out there. i heard him this morning. professor peterson, let me play for you an exchange when david gregory and senator jim demint on this topic of the president's vision versus that of republicans. listen to this, professor peterson. >> that's someth

between the best friends forever. >> no political tea leaves? >> we haven't got some tea. >> if he had a clinton presidency, i think we would have fixed this fiscal mess. >> it seems to be the pr organization for the obama administration. >> male models moonlighting as handymen. >> mike wallace is spinning in his grave. >> let's get to our panel now, angela rye is a political strategist. dr. james peterson is a contributor to thegrio.com and ryan grim, d.c. bureau chief for "the huffington post." welcome to all of you. i'm glad you're watching again ryan behind you on the screen. professor peteon, we saw a lot of the president this weekend, a lengthy interview given to the new republic and that interview with hillary clinton on "60 minutes." i see republicans grumbling about that interview. is that because it made democrats seem like mature, well-mannered, adults who are trying to get something done? >> yeah. for all of their critique about what they perceived as being a softball interview, have you ever seen a republican politician on a fox news interview? certainly there's a double s
